Richard CORBIN
Rebecca __?__
Nancy A. YEARNEST
Husband:  Richard CORBIN
Birth:  30 Oct 1797, Pendleton Dist. [now Pickens Co.], SC
Death:  4 Oct 1870, Gilmer Co., GA
Disposition:  buried City Cemetery, Ellijay, Gilmer Co., GA

Military Service:  Civil War:  Pvt., Co. F, 16th Battalion Georgia Cavalry
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Samuel CORBIN, Sr.
Mother:  Violet HOOD

I can't find Richard in the 1870 census (he's not with Nancy), so I wonder if his death date is correct?

Marriage-1:  ca. 1815; ended in divorce
Wife-1:  Rebecca __?__
Birth:  1795, Pendleton Dist. [now Pickens Co.], SC
Death:  aft. 1880 census, presumably in Marshall Co., AL
Occupation:  homemaker
Marriage-2:  4 Jan 1858, Gilmer Co., GA
Wife-2:  Nancy A. YEARNEST
Birth:  1834/5, NC
Death:  3 Nov 1914, Floyd Co., GA
Occupation:  homemaker
Children with Rebecca:
born in SC, presumably in Pendleton Dist. [now Pickens Co.], SC:
  1.  James CORBIN, b. 1817/8
  2.  Nelson Hester CORBIN, b. 1819/20 or May 1818
  3.  Charlotte CORBIN, b. 6 Mar 1821
  4.  Martin CORBIN, b. 1821/2

born in GA, presumably in Habersham Co., GA:
  5.  Edley D. CORBIN, b. 1822/3
  6.  Samuel CORBIN, b. 1825/6
  7.  (Son A) CORBIN, b. 1825-30
  8.  (Son B) CORBIN, b. 1830-35
  9.  (Son C) CORBIN, b. 1830-35
10.  Emanuel CORBIN, b. 1837/8
11.  R. Jane CORBIN, b. 1840/1

Children with Nancy A. YEARNEST born in Gilmer Co., GA:
12.  Mary A. CORBIN, b. 1858/9
13.  Peter R. CORBIN, b. ca. May 1861
14.  (Child) CORBIN, b. ca. 1863; d. by 1870
15.  Margarett Charlotte CORBIN, b. 1864/5
16.  Etha / Ethal / Ethel "Eddy" C. CORBIN, b. 1866/7
17.  Ellura / Elleura / Lula Frances CORBIN, b. 1868/9 or May 1870
18?  (Child) CORBIN, died young

Nancy states in the 1900 and 1910 censuses that she had seven children.  The only way I can see to fit in a seventh child is for there to have been a twin who died or that Nancy was pregnant when Richard died.
